About Richard and Jackie Smith

Jackie and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest before settling in Lodi, California wine country in 1991. We enjoy Hawaii for the remarkable way the people, views and experiences completely dissolve all stresses for a true relaxing vacation experience.

Richard and Jackie Smith purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard and Jackie Smith chose Central Maui

Ma'alaea Kai is an often undetected property in the central valley of Maui on the south coast. The property is maintained immaculately with arguably the nicest lawn on the island. The proximity to the swimming pool, barbeques in addition to being on the first floor which makes the large private lawn like your own backyard. Waking to the sun rising out the beach bedroom window directly over 10,023 foot Mt. Haleakala is one of the highlights of a trip to this property.

What makes this condo unique

If you are searching for the best all around experience Maui has to offer you will not be disappointed in this property at Ma'alaea. Being in a quiet area and the most central to all attractions and sites on Maui this condo will meet all of your getaway expectations.

Great place and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

Place was wonderful. Comfortable with all of the necessities, plus a little more. Central location made it easy to get to all the locations we wanted to see while there. Owners were easy to work with and extremely helpful. Great spot for a small family.

Usually when you see a picture of your hotel or condo on line looking the picture perfection of paradise. Then when you get there you are somewhat disappointed. In this case it was just what you saw on line. The picture perfect paradise. We had the best time ever and it was more than we had expected. We all appreciate the opportunity of staying there and we look forward to being able to stay there again in the future. Again what paradise. Thank you so so much. Incredible.

Great experience beautiful spot! Door leads out to beach which was full of sea turtles. Very quite neighborhood. Close to harbor actually walking distance from all the different charters. Owners super nice and very informative. Kept me up to date with anything and very prompt with calls or messages! I would stay here again in the future.

Just Right!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful location in early June. We had seen friend's pictures and were happy to find the pictures did not do this location justice. The view to the ocean and turtles (on one day we saw up to 7 turtles in the water) at the edge of shore daily were great to see. We were happy/lucky to find the kitchen was well stocked with many ingredients to help during our stay. At night we opened the front door slightly and let the trade winds refresh the condo. We did not have any issues with the neighbors and met other travelers from other countries. My daughters loved having the pool within 30 feet of the condo and were in the pool every spare moment. We slept in all three beds which were all very comfortable including the pull out sofa bed.

We found the location of the condo was great. 20 minutes away from Kihei/ Wailiea to the South and 25 minutes to Lahaina/ Kaanapli to the North. We loved the fact the harbor was 5 minutes away where many snorkel tours depart from. That is very helpful when you have to arrive at 6:15 am!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this condo to others. We had no issues with the neighbors, Wifi, or getting in to the condo. I would; however, agree with a previous renter and say a light outside of the front door would be a tremendous help. We arrived 5-6 nights of our stay at night with either shopping bags or beach gear. Having the ability to see the door code would have been very helpful. I would love to return to this location, and in the words of my 11 year old daughter, "we need to return for at least a month." Thank you Richard and Jackie you have a great place in a great location.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 8-night stay at Ma'alaea Kai condominiums, and can't say enough about how special this place is. First, the condo is just as it is pictured - comfortably furnished with a walk-out porch that faces the ocean. We frequently utilized the porch to sit and look at the awesome scenery, that included the mountain (volcano), and Molokini in the distance; we saw beautiful sunrises from the porch! The tradewinds provided a steady flow of air for us. The two bedrooms and baths were more than adequate for two couples sharing the condo, and both beds are incredibly comfortable! The kitchen offered everything we could have wanted to prepare meals, along with a large variety of condiments available in the refrigerator and cupboards. The swimming pool is a few steps from the condo, and was uncrowded and water temperature comfortable. The condo is within walking distance of Ma'alaea Harbor that has several nice restaurants, shops, and many excursions begin from there. Sea turtles delighted us at the water's edge, unusual birds visited us while sitting on the porch, and tropical flowers were everywhere! We loved the comfort and serenity of the place... we didn't want to leave! We plan to return next year :)
